Each race has various sub classes: the Human race features Mages, Knights and Rangers, while Orcs have Hunters, Berserkers and Sorcerers. The Moon Elf classes include Rangers and Elementalists.

  • Will Warhammer Online Be the Next Best Thing?

    Worthplaying has posted a preview of Warhammer Online today. The review is chock full of screenshots and interesting observations...

    When Dark Age of Camelot launched back in 2001, I felt it was EverQuest, only without the parts that I didn't like. By the same token, Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning might be World of WarCraft: PVP Done Better.

    Comparing WAR to WoW is inevitable — there are too many similarities to be dismissed. Both feature Orcs with cartoonish armor, both use similar fonts, and heck, even the names are similar. According to Games Workshop — the owners of the Warhammer name — Blizzard ripped them off. That might well be true, since my knowledge of Warhammer is limited to taking a look at a friend's miniatures and thinking, "Painting all of those must have been a hell of a lot of work." Even if Blizzard did borrow heavily from Games Workshop, because WoW launched first, Warhammer Online will be inevitably compared to WoW.

  • First Reviews Come In

    Today, GameZone posted one of the first significant reviews of Dark and Light.

    Players, after choosing race, begin at the citizen level, killing mobs to acquire the experience to level. Upon leveling, there are seven areas in which a player may distribute points, and there are also four initial paths that players can put points into. A player is considered a citizen until reaching level 10, at which point they get to choose their general class. The base skills fall into four categories – fighter, healer, hunter and spellcaster.

    Head over and see if this reviewer gave this game the thumbs up or down...

  • High Speed Fun Abounds

    Game Chronicles posted a game review today of Auto Assault. Was it a run away hit or a stall?

    If you loved the Mad Max movies, or played Interstate 76, or Carmageddon and always hoped that someday they’d make a massive multiplayer online game based in a world where cars do more than just get you around, your day has come. Auto Assault, brought to you by NC Soft, the same people who have done amazing work with such titles as City of Heroes and City of Villians, and Tabula Rasa, is a fast-paced MMO with a focus on vehicular mayhem.

    Set in a post-apocalyptic world where only the strong have survived, Auto Assault pits three powerful factions against each other, the Humans, the Biomeks, and the Mutants. Choose to play as a member of any of the three factions and start on the road to high-speed killing.

    Read the rest of this review and see if this is a game for you.
